    Default DCE assignment? anyone know anything about this?

    I was on assignment back to Fort Bragg (had another thread about it, this is sort of a continuation). I decided to drop my P identifier and so my slot at Bragg disappeared and I went needs of the Army. Anyway after two weeks I just found out where I'm going - a DCE unit. DCE (Defense Coordination Element), from what I've been able to find online' (not much), is just the group that coordinates efforts between the DOD and FEMA in the event of an emergency.

    Anyway I've found almost nothing regarding DCE assignments. I was wondering if anyone had any info at all to share. Specific things I'm curious about are:

    How many people will I be working with?
    What's the day-to-day life like?
    What sort of place do I work in?
    What's the atmosphere like?
    Is this a good or bad assignment in general?

    I'm a 25B E-5, and any information that can be provided or thoughts that can be shared would be appreciated. Google has been most unhelpful to me for once. Thanks!

    Thanks Chief, I just now posted a question about this on the discussion page there. Now just to see if I get some meaningful answers or get jumped on for posting a question like that in a professional forum :P
